Curls come in all shapes and sizes, from loose waves and bouncy curls to beautiful corkscrew tendrils, and these differences go beyond just how the hair looks. Every type of curl needs a personalised routine to ensure the curls are cared for and can look their best every, single, day. Caring for your curls doesn’t have to be a chore, in fact, find the right routine and hair care and styling will become a breeze. Below we reveal 3 simple routines for different curl types, all utilising our incredible new line especially formulated for curly hair - Curl Manifesto
Routine #1: Wavy
Our first routine is created with Type 2 wavy hair in mind. Type 2 hair isn’t particularly oily or dry and although it is prone to frizz it tends to reflect shine pretty well. Type 2 hair can range from 2A, which is fine and relatively easy to style, through to 2C which is quite coarse and prone to frizz.
A simple 4-step routine that starts with shampoo - Bain Hydration Douceur - to remove product build-up. A gentle creamy shampoo it effectively cleans the scalp and strands whilst also nourishing and hydrating.
Next comes the conditioner - Fondant Hydration Essentielle. This replenishes the hair’s moisture without weighing down the strands.
When it comes to styling you can choose the Creme de Jour Fondamentale, a frizz-reducing leave-in product for soft and hydrated curls.
Our hero product, Refresh is a second-day curl refreshing spray that imparts hydration, enhances shine and re-energises your curls.
Routine #2: Very Curly
Our second routine was created with Curl Type 3 in mind. These spiral curls that range from loose and springy to tight ringlets aren’t as shiny as straight or wavy hair because the follicles don’t lay as flat. Natural moisture doesn’t migrate from roots to tips, so the strands don’t reflect the light as well. This curl type has to deal with dryness, breakage, frizz and tangles, so it needs some extra TLC.
First up, the Bain Hydration Douceur cleanses the scalp and strands, and removes product build-up. With its creamy texture it nourishes and hydrates, too.
Instead of a conditioner, this curl type responds better to a masque. We recommend the Masque Beurre Haute Nutrition, an extra rich treatment it deeply nourishes and smoothes the hair, whilst also helping you to detangle your curls with ease (meaning less chance of unwanted breakage).
Our moisturiser, define, shine styling products really help you to create the final look you want. Creme de Jour Fondamentale tackles frizz thanks to its smoothing leave-in formula.
A total strand-saver, Refresh Absolu is a mist that refreshes, enhances and moisturises curls between washes.
Routine #3: Coily
This routine is created for Curl Type 4, this is hair that is tightly coiled and is one of the most fragile hair types that requires a lot of care. You may find your coils have an “S” pattern or they may have a less defined pattern, but whichever you have both require plenty of attention.
The cornerstone of all our curly-hair routines, the Bain Hydration Douceur cleanses the scalp and strands, whilst also removing product build-up. It’s effective at cleansing but its creamy texture also nourishes and hydrates your precious curls.
As with Curl Type 3, this curl type also responds better to a masque than a conditioner. The Curl Manifesto Masque Beurre Haute Nutrition is an extra rich treatment that is incredibly nourishing and leaves your curls smooth and free of tangles.
Here we recommend a leave in cream : The Creme de Jour Fondamentale, a leave-in frizz-reducing treatment to really enhance the beauty of your curls.
At night, you can also use the Nutritive 8 Hour Magic Night Serum to add extra nourishment and care to your curls while you sleep.
And finally, the Refresh Absolu is a mist that refreshes, enhances and moisturises curls so you can avoid any need to over-wash your hair.
